Out Our Way:

April has been another busy month. Whoever chose April as Tax Return month must have had it in for New Orleans because it is the most glorious month of the year. Clear bright skies and cool shirt sleeve weather, low humidity and the whole world calls for us to be outside, while we struggle miserably indoors with our income tax returns! Those of us who don't have a CPA on retainer, that is. Time to get rid of income taxes with its nosy IRS minions and replace the tax system with a simple, everybody pays, sales tax. Pay taxes one-time when you buy something. Encourage savings and investment — that will put everyone to work at good jobs — jobs that add to the net worth of this country, instead taking away from it in unproductive time filling out tax returns on beautiful days in the Spring!

I attended the Mass of Chrism on the Tuesday before Easter at the St. Louis Basilica in Jackson Square. You know it from its status as the trademark or logo of New Orleans - instantly recognizable. I think it's fantastic to live in a city whose universally recognized icon is a church. I believe it is the first cathedral in the USA and is situated between the oldest apartment buildings in the country, the ones designed and funded by Baroness Pontalba. Look for an opera about this amazing woman soon, as the New Orleans Opera Guild has commissioned one to be written. During the Chrism Mass, the oils used by the entire Archdiocese of New Orleans are blessed and distributed to the almost 400 priests in attendance, all decked out in their white scapulae with colorful designs on each. Quite a parade of saints when they come marching into the cathedral to the sounds of trumpets and the angelic voices of the Boys' Choir. I never miss this wonderful ceremony. Afterward I had my café-au-lait and beignets [square donuts dusted with powdered sugar] at Café du Monde. My friend Hock Barthelemew was holding forth on the sidewalk outside, playing his trumpet and singing "Amazing Grace". This year he had a guitar accompaniment, a guitarist from New Mexico in town for the Jazz Fest.

For Easter Sunday, we were invited by our friend Captain Andy to join him and his family in their Greek Easter celebration at his home on the eastern edge of Lake Pontchartrain. Sitting there with the cool breeze in our faces, looking out at the sailboats on the lake, I couldn't imagine a more wonderful place to be on an Easter Sunday. We've been to Capt. Andy's for Greek Easter several times before, but this is the first time the Western and the Greek Easters coincided on the same Sunday; usually the Greek Easter comes on the Sunday after the Western celebration. Did I mention the food? I cooked a turkey and oyster dressing and by the looks of the meager leftovers, it found a place on dinner plates along with the cabbage rolls, roast lamb, baklava, and other things whose Greek names I can't recall.

On the Thursday after Easter, I got a contract writing procedures for an offshore platform, a dynamically positioned rig. What that means is that the rig is actually a ship with eight thrusters and a Captain [DPO] whose collective job is to keep the ship in the same place with a foot or two so that drilling may proceed safely and efficiently. You might say that I was floating out in the middle of the Gulf but I never moved for a whole week. Click Here to see rig.

This weekend we're going to a birthday party for our friend Gail, a special function at Holy Family Church with my dad, a crawfish boil at my daughter Maureen's in-laws, and the newlyweds, Doyle and Norma Henderson arrived in town in their 38' Motorhome. They joined us in Bobby Jeaux's Kitchen last night.

Our grandson, Gabe, made his First Communion, and our grandson, Sam, in Little League baseball, made the All-Star team for his league.

4. Garth Speight's Polack STORY:
== == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == == ==

Note: this month, dear Readers, you get a break from the Cajun stories. This might be called a Polack story as it involves three natives of Poland. It is a true story. I relate it as I recall Garth Speight's telling his story to our small seminar group in Rome before our farewell banquet. The story is so fascinating that, without taking notes, I was able to recall most of it from my memory a week later when I wrote it up. There are some details in this story that people who have heard it many times may not know, up until now. A friend who was a Museum Director told me that it was the funniest story she ever heard. With that tantalizing introduction done with, read on. . .

March 27, 2001: We went to dinner at Franco's Ristorante near where Garth lives in Rome. But first we had champagne all around in Garth's dining room. Battle Bell coaxed Garth to tell the story of how he came to have a painting, an artwork of his, hung in the Vatican Museum.

Did I tell you this story already? I've told it to many other people since it's such a great story. Shows how Rome pretty much works the way Louisiana works: if you want something done, it helps if you know somebody who knows somebody in power. In this case the most unlikely person, name of Felix, who Garth called the "Porno King of Rome" because of his long term dealing in making sexually explicit movies and other pornographia.

Garth had done some small favors for Felix, cashed some checks for him, stuff like that. Felix said, "Garth, I want to repay you for you favors." Garth demurred, saying it was nothing, forget about it. Felix kept bringing up the subject and finally, in exasperation, Garth said, "Okay, if you want to do something for me, help me get one of my paintings hung in the Vatican." That seemed to shut Felix up and Garth was happy.

Then one day, months later, a phone call came for Garth. "Pronto" Garth said, which is the universal greetings Italians use when they answer the phone, it means "I Hear" approximately. The officious sounding man on the other end of the phone said, "I am Pietro Angelica (Peter of the Angels, in English), head of the Vatican Art Museum and we have received instructions from above to hang one of your paintings in the Vatican." Garth said that old Peter of the Angels wasn't too happy that someone had gone over his head, as ole Pete's job was selecting the paintings for the Vatican Museum! Besides that, going over his head meant the Pope personally had requested Garth's painting be hung! Garth was agog. How this happened he had no idea, having forgotten about Felix and his jestful request of him.

He met with Peter to show him samples of his artworks that might be suitable for the Vatican. Garth had done a series of biblical themed paintings years earlier, and Peter selected the one called the Sacrifice of Isaac.

Garth explained to us that he liked to doing paintings in which there was some tension, and one can see that the Angel is holding the knife in Abraham's hand which is poised to sacrifice Isaac. Peter said that there were no paintings in the Vatican which dealt with this subject and that was the one he wanted. Since he couldn't select the artist, he was going to exercise his selection authority in some way.

He told Garth that there would be a ceremony in about a month to induct his painting into the Vatican exhibit and Garth went home to locate his painting. His records showed that the painting was in Canada with a friend of his in a warehouse with other paintings. He called his friend and got back the news that Isaac had disappeared without a trace. What could Garth do?

Since he was the artist, he decided to paint a copy of his own painting. He had a photograph to work from. So he had the painting completed and got a call from Fr. Peter to set the date - it was to be in a couple of weeks. And "Oh, by the way, since you are the first artist from your country to have a work hung in the Vatican, we'd like a representative from your country, an official from your country, to be present at the ceremony." Garth left the meeting a little shaken as he didn't know where to turn. Wait, he thought to himself, there's old Joe from the Canadian Embassy to Italy that I get together with for drinks from time to time. We're always drinking and joking. He'll be able to help. So Garth called his friend "Joe" (not his real name) at the Embassy. His ole drinking buddy thought Garth was spoofing and refused to take him seriously. Several other calls to the Canadian Embassy to Italy brought no response. Time was running out. Suddenly Garth remembered that there are two Canadian Embassies in Rome, one to Italy and one to the Vatican, which is a different and separate country and has its own embassy.

He called in blind to the Canadian Embassy to the Vatican and they took him seriously. Only problem was that the official who normally took care of such duties was out of town and not available. But don't worry, the man at the embassy told Garth, we have just had a new ambassador appointed to the Vatican. He only just got here today and he's not doing anything tomorrow, so he'll be glad to do the job of being your representative.

Suddenly Garth went from having nobody as his representative to having the ambassador himself. Triumphantly he called Fr. Peter of the Angels at the Vatican to tell him of his official representative from Canada, only to have this icy reply, "The ambassador?" "Yes," Garth said, "the ambassador will be there tomorrow."

"But you can't do that," Fr. Pete protested, "the ambassador has not been presented to the Pope yet!"

"Look, you asked for an official representative of my government, and that's who you're going to get." Garth replied.

So Garth and the ambassador showed up for the ceremony, the highlight of which was the signing of the official book, a huge tome covered with gold and filled with indestructible vellum pages. It was opened to a blank page and the pen was given by Fr. Peter to the Canadian ambassador to sign. The ambassador said, "I can't sign that."

"Why not?" Fr. Peter asked.

"I'm not the artist. The artist of the work is the one who should sign that document."

So the ornate quill pen was handed to Garth who signed it with a flourish not seen since John Hancock signed the Declaration of Independence.

Only later did Garth happen to run into Felix, remember him - the Porno King of Rome? He said, "Felix, I got one of my paintings hung in the Vatican recently. Did you by any chance have something to do with that?"

"Oh, sure, I called the First Secretary to the Pope who was a school buddy of mine back in grade school in Poland and asked him to have a painting of yours hung in the Vatican and he said he'd take care of it."

We can only guess that the Secretary drafted a letter for the Pope to sign directing the Head of the Vatican Museum, Fr. Peter, to hang one of Garth's works in the Vatican. "Here sign this, this artist's work needs to be in the Vatican. We don't have any Canadian artists." And the Pope signed it. Garth says that for twenty years after the episode with the ambassador, Fr. Peter was angry with Garth for bringing the ambassador and never forgave him till the day he died.

We laughed and laughed at all the twists and turns of the story. I hope I got all of them and the names correct, as I'm typing this from my memory of that night almost a week ago. I've told the story several times in between that has helped me to remember details that I otherwise would have forgotten.

And for my Good Readers, here’s the new reviews and articles for this month. The ARJ2 ones are new additions to the top of A Reader’s Journal, Volume 2, Chronological List, and the ART ones to A Reader’s Treasury.

1.) ARJ2: Twillinger’s Voyage A Sassy SF Novel by Dan Turner

How would you like to sweat your assets off on an iceteroid? Jerry Twill gets to do it.

From his imprisonment in a paradisical park in a pseudo-asteroid to the owner of his own asteroid Zeesix, we follow his being tutored in the methods of “friendly persuasion” by the galactic aliens, the cute little zini, whose bites are worse than their high-pitched barks.

2.) ART: ReFraming - NLP and Meaning by Bandler and Grinder

Excerpt from the Review:

The first thing I learned about reframing was to identify the "good intention" of my unwanted behavior. One can say this is a prerequisite for doing reframing. But is it true? Does every behavior have a good intention, even those nasty behaviors that we don't like in ourselves? The answer is simply: it doesn't matter if it's true, but it's very useful to pretend that it's true that every behavior has a good intention.

And when one deals with models, one asks, "Is it useful?" not "Is it true?" Yes, it is very useful to hold the pretense that every behavior has a good intention. It's useful because if you pretend that it's true, you can find a good intention and discover that the good intention can be satisfied by other behaviors! Then the objectionable behavior can be replaced by a behavior that doesn't have the unwanted side-effects of the original behavior. In a nutshell, that is reframing.

To obtain our street address, email Bobby at the address found on this page: and we will send it to you. Every $50 subscription helps toward keeping this website on-line for another month.

My reviews are not intended to replace the purchasing and reading of the reviewed books, but rather to supplant a previous reading or to spur a new reading of your own copy. What I endeavor to do in most of my reviews is to impart a sufficient amount of information to get the reader comfortable with the book so that they will want to read it for themselves. My Rudolf Steiner reviews are more detailed and my intention is bring his work to a new century of readers by converting his amazing insights into modern language and concepts.
